Summary

James Ramos received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Rangeland Management and Ecology, with a minor in Soil Science, from Oregon State University. During his undergraduate career, Mr. Ramos gained both field experience and ArcGIS experience in conducting fluvial analyses. He has extended his skills into other GIS applications at Applied Ecology to support GIS data development for modeling projects and mapping efforts.

 He has experience in a variety of fields, having volunteered with the Florida Institute of Technology’s Coastal Geology Department, where he assisted in field collection, laboratory processing, data processing, and data analysis for a geological assessment of a near shore berm. Additionally, he has gained laboratory experience in sediment processing and analysis, while supporting paleoecological research efforts at Florida Institute of Technology.

Previously, Mr. Ramos worked with the U.S. Forest Service in Oregon as a Range Technician where he developed his skills in field data collection, management, and familiarity with safety protocols. During his year at Applied Ecology, Inc. as a field technician, Mr. Ramos has applied and extensively expanded these skills into the water quality monitoring field. He is involved in all ongoing water quality sampling projects such as surface water sampling for the City of Indian Harbour Beach, groundwater sampling for a countywide modeling and monitoring study, as well as several performance-based sampling efforts.

Highlighted skills include: Groundwater sampling, surface water sampling, data entry, SOP implementation.
